This really sums it up. I can't tell the difference between them on IG anymore. Even worse when they'll still occasionally make snarky comments about other companies/Lids when the differences have all but disappeared.

Not sure how new of a problem this is. But I just spotted this.

Front eyelets set way too low on wahoo
https://www.hatclub.com/products/div-new-era-59fifty-cleveland-indians-1997-world-series-fitted-hat-2t-navy-red-div

It's like that on the all Navy cap too.

These are no longer HC exclusives so it may just be a made in China problem.

Sad time. I never noticed this on older releases.

Super sad times. I finally came across a made in Bangladesh cap. It cannot be overstated just how had the cap is

It’s the two tone twins cap from HC if anyone is interested. Stay away.

Has anyone seen the new ones they're pimping out? They're the regular on-field caps with lame logos added on the side of the front panel and on the back next to the batterman logo. They're supposed to be like "city" editions...for instance, the Red Sox cap has the Paul Rever statue next to the B on the front and a freaking lobster roll on the back next to the batterman. The Phillies cap has the Liberty Bell and a cheesesteak, the Dodgers cap has a palm tree and a taco...they look soooooooooooo bad.

Approximately three years too late, they finally do a Charleston Wheelers cap (my childhood team and a grail for me). Sadly I’ll hope it hits the clearance bin, because I’m not spending $45 with tax for Chinese/Haiti/Bangladesh/who knows. That’s life.

My feelings exactly. I've seen some terrific designs from HC recently, as always, but I can't justify spending 42 bucks on a mediocre- to poorly-constructed imported cap. Even if it is a grail-level design. Their hats are still selling out, so someone's still buying, though.

Seems like most of the fan boys don't care that NE puts out trash now. They still buy up new releases.

Those are so bad. Kind of embarrassing watching guys on other groups hyping them up and praising them. The clip art they used isn’t even good quality.

Remember that feeling of opening up a box with an awesome MUSA poly HC cap inside? I got to experience that again yesterday. Made me feel like Rose the Hat and her True Knot buddies getting off on an old container of steam.* It needs a little ironing and time on the Nu-Cap but that's not unusual for MUSA w/IM caps.

Thank you to the fellow poster who I'm pretty sure sold it on eBay. Wink



*Doctor Sleep reference. See it if you haven't already!

Aha! That was you!

With the question you asked, I knew it was either somebody from here or IG.

Glad you like it!

Definitely not me.

It's been forever since I bought from Hat Club. Even my local Hat Club. It's now about 75% snapbacks & streetwear. The MLB on-fields (technically replicas now), MiLB, and the selection of other fitteds is a fraction of what it once was. It's sad. Those 90s script caps were cool and I even thought about getting the Padres one, but a friend that bought one sent me a picture and it had a massive, onion-shaped crown. I don't want to walk around looking a like a sultan of the ottoman empire.

Hell no. Sad times we are living in. On the bright side, I get to save some money.

Hat Club must be out of ideas. $45 for these abominations? You used to be able to find junk like this in the Lids Clearance section for under $10. "Yellow Taxi Collection", LOLz.

The sad thing is the recent releases are apparently incredibly popular. No wonder NE stopped caring quality or American workers.
